Comments: - Grew OK in Summer though was suceptible to leaf burn in hot weather. %uFFFDSurvived the Winter but died in Sept just as it was getting new shoots. %uFFFDSame thing happened to a second one. %uFFFDI guess the soil temperture was too low for the roots although we had no frost (at all).

1st photo taken 2009.  Green Sapote left & Jelly Palm on right.  I planted  4x non suckering Acacia's around them to protect them.  As my soil is poor, frosts in the winter & hot western summer sun.  They are now 13yrs old and still no fruit.  Anytime now!

Oct 2016 Photo update.  FINALLY!!! fruit....x8 nice looking ones, have been hanging on x2 trees for 8 or more weeks, nice size.  Picked one 4 wks ago, not ready., another did drop on ground and flesh went dry, but seed looks ok. Still waiiting with others.  This is such a beautiful tree with all the flower buds on the stems.

I was a bit worried about this one after a particularly dry spell, all the leaves curled up and it was basically a stick.  Re-potted it, added some compost and liquid fertiliser and it's doing fine.

Has come back well, reshooting from the base- lots of new growth even during our winter

Green Sapote (Seedling)

VF1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2114 days 3hrs

Comments: -

 Tastes apparently like a superior Mamey Sapote (which I LOVE), and is a smaller fruit (easier to eat) than M.S., and the bonus is that the seeds can be eaten like a nut too when roasted! The tree is also cold-hardier than M.S., so I'm hoping it will be successful.

I have a seedling as is near impossible to find a grafted plant.

Tree attractive presently - looks very much like a Loquat!  Needs a bit of space as can get to 18-20m tall.

Planted mid-autumn.  Will be protected for winter.

Planted: 2012

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun
